Re: GIVEAWAY: Hitachi 18V Cordless Framing Nailer


Even though I predominantly do masonry,the nailer will come in handy for me. I can retire my 29 yr. old air hose Bostich.

A cordless nailer will be the berries for concrete footings and the occasional form work where nails are needed. No more hoses to snag on everything in sight. Also,just a trick to pass on too guys that don't know it. You can use a nailer for forms etc.,where you normally use duplex nails. Just place a shim against the form first,shoot through it;when the time comes to strip,a swing or two with the claw end will shatter the shim,allowing the nail to be grabbed and pulled out.

Just set the nose all the way out for sinking nails. The Hitachi nail depth set is highly functional
